companies were fixing the prices opt fees. cnn was told earlier today that the organization isn't supporting the settlement, even though the credit card companies are suspending the fees for eight months. >> well, you have to read the fine print when you deal with credit card companies and that's true here too. when you read the fine print it is eye-opening. they are not going to reduce the fees even for the eight months. what they are going to do is give merchants the equivalent of that amount of cash and keep raising the fees. the cruel joke is, by the time any merchant gets some of this money, they will have raised the fees on the merchants more than what they paid out in the first place. so merchants are paying for it themselves. >> the settlement is still subject to court approval. the family of a massachusetts man kidnapped in egypt is making an urgent plea for his release. the tribe captured pastor michelle louis along with an american woman and their egyptian tour guide yesterday. the three were taken off a tour bus in the country sinai region. kidnappers are demanding egypt release

? >> we did. cnn did have a chance to talk to them, and we were, our cameras were rolling yesterday when police allowed, started to allow people to go back in permanently. at first they were allowed to go back there to get some of their belong inings to get to where e they were staying to a hotel or relative, but yesterday they took down the police tape and allow ed them wider access, but the interesting thing, fred, is that some folks are choosing not to go back. they are choosing to go back to get their things, but not comfortable yet. most of the people are choosing not the stay permanently, but a few of them said, i am glad to be back to sleep in my own bed and hopefully things will start to get back to normal soon, but i think that it is interesting because of all of the explosive s that investigators say that were in that apartment, that a lot of people are not comfortable going there to stay there permanently. yes, fred? >> yes, don, and some people still suspect some residual explosives in the unit and it does not make them safe or they don't like the eerie feeling, the knowledge

's view? >> well, honestly, carol, mitt romney has done a couple of interviews. one with cnn's piers morgan and another on "the today show" on nbc and he is not really acknowledging publicly some of the criticism he's gotten here in london since those comments he made to nbc a couple of days ago about the city's readiness for the olympic games. you mentioned those headlines in the london newspapers. i have the one you just mentioned in "the sun," mitt the twit. i think this morning it's safe to say that the romney campaign probably has a new use for the olympic torch, and that is to burn some of these headlines, carol. but let me play for you some of what romney said on piers morgan last night, because piers asked romney about this criticism, and he didn't really seem to acknowledge it. here's what he had to say. >> you've been slightly criticized on knocking the british enthusiasm. are you feeling it now? >> well, i'm delighted to see the kind of support that has been around the torch, for instance. i watched last night on bbc an entire program about the torch being run across great

the very latest right now starting with cnn's ed lavandera. he's over at the movie theater where all of this unfolded. what is the very latest, ed? >> reporter: wolf, we've just confirmed with a law enforcement source as to where these four guns were purchased. we've been told by this law enforcement source that all four guns were purchased legally within the last six months. two of the guns were purchased at a bass pro shop in the city of denver. one of the guns was purchased at a mountain gander gun store here in the town of aurora. another was purchased at a gander mountain in thornton, colorado, as well. again, law enforcement source saying those guns were purchased legally within the last six months. we're also told by that law enforcement source that they had found a drum magazine that was connected to the ar-15 rifle. this would have given james holmes the ability to shoot about 100 rounds with that magazine. and the source saying obviously that gave him much more capability to fire off many many rounds once inside that theater. and, wolf, what we've learned from talking to wi
in "cnn newsroom." >> good morning, and happy fourth of july to you too. >>> hot, hot, hot. today could be one of the hottest july fourths ever. that could happen in several major cities. heat, humidity, and thunderstorms will blanket the nation. >>> plus, this. >> just think of how many we got into one sentence. that was really impressive. what wrote this [ bleep ]? >> oh, new york mayor michael bloomberg unplugged at the nathan's hot dog wagon. seems he couldn't stomach the puns, like let me be frank. it's going to be a dog fight. and i'll relish it. it's bloomberg like we've never seen him. >>> also -- >> you can see the sparks flying all over the place. it was raining fire down on us. >> on the frontlines, colorado firefighters taking cnn with them as they fight the fires home by home. the fire chief telling the denver post this morning he knew the fire would happen, that it was a monster ready to awaken and kill. >>> and on this independence day, what's your definition of a hero? our men and women in the military? your mom, your dad? think about it. it's our talk back question of t

to helping to build greater awareness of the societal issue of child abuse. >> cnn's susan candiotti is joining us now. louis freeh led this study. it was very, very bitter and damming. >> reporter: it was, wolf. right out of the gate, louis freeh made it clear that children were victimized because four top penn state officials did nothing to stop jerry sandusky. and named names including a man's name synonymous with penn state university, the late coach joe paterno. from the moment jerry sandusky was marched before the public branded a predatory pedophile, a troubling question lingered, what did those at penn state university do to stop him? now the public has an answer. >> our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at penn state. >> reporter: louis freeh, hired by the university to investigate its role in the jerry sandusky scandal delivered a scathing 267-page report. 430 interviews, 3.5 million pieces of evidence adding up to one major finding about what they did with evidence of
has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then
